RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday evening detained Ramallah and al-Bireh governor Laila Ghannam on her way from Jericho to Ramallah.

A statement from the governor’s office said that “Occupation forces brutally took the papers of the car carrying the governor, and stopped all cars with red (Palestinian governmental) license plates intentionally and provocatively”.

They were released a while later, the statement added.

Ghannam said that her detention was a political message from the Israeli government to all PA leaders that Israel wants to impose its control in every way possible.

She added that targeting Palestinian leaders “in all racist ways” was an attempt to weaken the PA and publicly threaten its representatives.

“Our national effort to build our institutions is continuous despite all these procedures,” Ghannam said.

Also Tuesday, for the third time in two weeks, Israeli forces stopped the convoy of interim Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah as he was traveling in the occupied West Bank.

Local sources told a Ma'an reporter that Hamdallah was detained for 45 minutes at the checkpoint near the District Coordination Office at the entrance to Ramallah.

The convoy was coming from Nablus in the northern West Bank.

Wake up PA. An 18 year old Jewish soldier with an M 16 is Judge , jury and executioner. Israel's border is where Israeli tanks stop. This had been the pattern. Wake up and smell the roses. Resistance is the only lanuage/Dynamic that the Zionists understand and respond to.

It's all good. If Israel keeps publicly humiliating the authorities of the PA, the PA will find collaboration morally impossible and will have to return to resistance. What's to be feared is not a stupid Israel, but an intelligent Israel.
